In Miyazaki Medical College, students have been taught the same equilibrium func-tion tests for the past 15 years. We analyzed the data to determine whether or not the pro-gram is adequate for undergraduate medical education.<BR>Most of the 108 students could perform Romberg's test, goniometry, static sen-sography, and the pointing test, Vertical writing and Gait tests were also performed suc-cessfully. But 22.2% of them recorded incorrect data for moving distance in the stepping test possibly because of influences of noise and light. Caloric testing is the most difficult equilibrium function test, but the data obtained were reliable.<BR>All students had a keen interest in equilibrium function and understood the tests, because they had experienced them as both examiners and as examinees.<BR>We are satisfied that the curriculum is suitable for undergraduate medical education.
